Sensitive skin is known to respond to changes in ingredients, but all skin types-not just sensitive-are susceptible to adverse reactions that can cause skin to become red and inflamed.
When it comes to experimenting with products and ingredients, the best way to test out something new is to start slowly, trying the product for two weeks on a small area of the face before using it all over. This allows your skin to adjust and get used to the ingredients.
In the event your skin experiences some sort of reactive redness, it’s best to apply a cool compress and use soothing ingredients, as well as soap-free and fragrance-free products, to calm the skin. You’ll also want to discontinue use of the offending product.
